i am so ready for bed. i'm going to bed with bayley tonight, she might get a bath if i can keep my eyes open.
i went to bed at 2 last night and bayley woke up at 630 ready to greet the day. i had to greet the day too, although my greeting was more like grumbling and irritablility. i had 2 cups of coffee and after bayley pleaded me not to be tired, i peeled my body off the couch. it was a slow go, but i started getting some momentum. i realized that this might be the only way to get into a different routine that works for us. i had to do some tweaking and it was not pretty. but it was a beautiful day and i decided to get out and take bayley for a power walk in the jogger. she hesitated, but i wouldn't take no for an answer. we walked 2 miles. she loved it so much, she fell asleep. yay, no nap struggles! tweeking was working.
then i proceeded to work on this...
i made this yummy asparagas wrap
and we danced
we even did some family yoga and stood on our heads
we made a pizza
and yummy cookies
and relaxed with our cat who really knows how to live the good life
and my favorite part was when bayley picked up a big ol worm. everyday we go outside and look under the same rock for bugs, everyday we find worms and baby snails. but today my girl reached down and picked up this guy and it was like her pet.
it's really hard to change the way we are, especially when most of us do the same things everyday, in the same order for the same reasons. changing course is painful and awkward and uses new brain muscles or something like that. but what's the point of doing the same old thing if we are unhappy with the results. better to exercise those new muscles and hurt for a few days than to stay comfortably uncomfortable.
so here's to tweaking things !!
